"Looking over my body of work, I realize that my figures do express a sense of stillness, introspection and quiet contentment. With the daily onslaught of harrowing news, it is easy to loose hope in the human race. It is my wish that my sculptures bring some beauty, peace and tranquility into people's lives. To connect them back to a place of hope."
"Connecting to the untamable and the uncontrollable feels like the irony of life."
"When you have doubts, find self-acceptance, and keep going."
"It is actually quite a responsibility to create something that cannot be undone."
~Jennifer McCurdy, ceramic artist
"I was a little surprised to hear so many people express that they perceive my pieces as being intentionally disturbing. Wanting to explore the workings of the unconscious tends to make people feel uncomfortable. They imagine death...I like to think of insects caught in amber."
